We all assume that our air conditioner will work when we need it to. When it does not, it’s an unpleasant surprise. Summer comes early in Texas. When the temperatures start rising, you want your air conditioner to work. However, after sitting dormant all winter, your air conditioner may not be ready to handle the summer heat. However, with a little TLC and some routine maintenance, your AC can be up to the task in no time.
Keep reading to learn why early spring is the best time for air conditioner maintenance.
Beat the Rush & the Heat
The first time the temperature spikes, AC repair companies are always bombarded by a wave of service calls. When this happens, you can find yourself waiting days or even weeks to get a repair appointment. You cannot go that long without a working air conditioner in the Texas heat. By scheduling your annual AC maintenance now, you can get an appointment when it’s convenient for you, avoid the mad rush, and go into summer confident that your air conditioner is reliable and ready to go.
Replace Worn Out Parts
Your air conditioner is one of the hardest working appliances in your home. After using it all summer, it may be suffering from wear and tear. Additionally, after sitting for several months, your system will have accumulated a lot of dust and dirt. This can reduce the system’s efficiency even further and lead to more repair problems. If you schedule your annual maintenance in March or April, you have the chance to replace and repair any worn-out or broken parts before your system breaks down.
Reduce Your Energy Costs
As energy costs rise, many people are looking for ways to reduce their energy costs. However, many are surprised to learn that AC maintenance can help. Your HVAC system is one of the primary users of electricity in your home. In the summer, your AC system works overtime to combat the Texas heat. If it’s not in good working order, it has to work harder, requiring more energy. A well-maintained air conditioner runs more efficiently. This means that it requires less energy to run, and it won’t need to run as often. When you use less energy, you save money.
Reduce Your Allergy Symptoms
Springtime in Texas is gorgeous. However, with the natural beauty comes pollen. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, the return of spring is a double-edged sword. And many people suffer from allergies through the summer. As part of your regular AC maintenance, our technicians clean your entire system (eliminating dust and debris) and replace your air filters. This can dramatically improve your home’s air quality and help you reduce your allergy symptoms.
Get the Most out of Your AC
One of the greatest benefits of scheduling your annual AC maintenance now is that it can help you extend your system’s lifespan. While the average air conditioner will last around a decade, your AC system will likely require early replacement if you neglect your maintenance. Poorly maintained systems are more likely to suffer from chronic repair problems. Additionally, many manufacturer warranties require routine maintenance and filter changes.
